    Atmospheric Catchment Tank- how to get it out.

    Evening all;

    Has anyone here every removed the Atmospheric Catchment Tank in the left hand wing as I'm renewing all the collant hoses. If so where are the screws to undo the access panel to it? Is it still necessary to use it? Would it be easier to remove the front wing and if so how?

    I'm baffled!

    I would think Tim that you may gain access by removing the wheel arch liner. Not 100% sure though.

    I do not offer advice, I only say what I would do with the set of circumstances presented. Your choice always.

    Cheers Jim, the problem is there is no indication of how the wheel arch liner comes out, I've started using white spirit to remove the waxoil but can't see any screws to undo it

    Unless anyone else comes along, you need to speak to FM brakebuster - he will know from his rebuild.

    Cheers Reddiesel - followed those links and worked out there was only 1 screw at the top holding the inspection panel on. The pipework to the arb was blocked and the bottle itself contained a green liquid looking rather like screen wash. All cleaned, part refilled and reinstalled.
